  1. Robots with Internal Models: A Route to Machine Consciousness?Owen Holland & Russell B. Goodman - 2003 - Journal of Consciousness Studies 10 (4-5):77-109.
    We are engineers, and our view of consciousness is shaped by an engineering ambition: we would like to build a conscious machine. We begin by acknowledging that we may be a little disadvantaged, in that consciousness studies do not form part of the engineering curriculum, and so we may be starting from a position of considerable ignorance as regards the study of consciousness itself. In practice, however, this may not set us back very far; almost a decade ago, Crick wrote: (...)

    Wittgenstein and William James.Russell B. Goodman - 2002 - Cambridge University Press.
    This 2002 book explores Wittgenstein's long engagement with the work of the pragmatist William James. In contrast to previous discussions Russell Goodman argues that James exerted a distinctive and pervasive positive influence on Wittgenstein's thought. For example, the book shows that the two philosophers share commitments to anti-foundationalism, to the description of the concrete details of human experience, to the priority of practice over intellect, and to the importance of religion in understanding human life. Considering in detail what Wittgenstein learnt (...)

    American Philosophy and the Romantic Tradition.Russell B. GOODMAN - 1990 - Cambridge University Press.
    Professional philosophers have tended either to shrug off American philosophy as negligible or derivative or to date American philosophy from the work of twentieth century analytical positivists such as Quine. Russell Goodman expands on the revisionist position developed by Stanley Cavell, that the most interesting strain of American thought proceeds not from Puritan theology or from empirical science but from a peculiarly American kind of Romanticism. This insight leads Goodman, through Cavell, back to Emerson and Thoreau and thence to William (...)

    Contending with Stanley Cavell.Stanley Cavell & Russell B. Goodman (eds.) - 2005 - Oxford University Press.
    Stanley Cavell has been a brilliant, idiosyncratic, and controversial presence in American philosophy, literary criticism, and cultural studies for years. Even as he continues to produce new writing of a high standard -- an example of which is included in this collection -- his work has elicited responses from a new generation of writers in Europe and America. This collection showcases this new work, while illustrating the variety of Cavell's interests: in the "ordinary language" philosophy of Wittgenstein and Austin, in (...)

    Pragmatism: A Contemporary Reader.Russell B. Goodman (ed.) - 1995 - Routledge.
    Russell Goodman examines the curious reemergence of pragmatism in a field dominated in the past decades by phenomenology, logic, positivism, and deconstruction. With contributions from major contemporary and classical thinkers such as Cornel West, Richard Rorty, Nancy Fraser, Charles Sanders Peirce, and Ralph Waldo Emerson Russell has gathered an impressive chorus of philosophical voices that reexamine the origins and complexities of neo-pragmatism. The contributors discuss the relationship between pragmatism and literary theory, phenomenology, existentialism, and the work of Ralph Waldo Emerson. (...)

    Schopenhauer and Wittgenstein on Ethics.Russell B. Goodman - 1979 - Journal of the History of Philosophy 17 (4):437-447.
    Three claims wittgenstein makes in the tractatus are explicated via schopenhauer's idealism: 1) ethical reward and punishment lie in the action itself, 2) the good or bad exercise of the will alter the world's limits, So that it waxes or wanes, 3) eternal life belongs to those who live in the present. Schopenhauer's theory fills out some of wittgenstein's statements. For example, The happy man's world waxes to the degree that he frees himself from the false perspective of the "principium (...)

    Although they were in part otherworldly mystics, the Taoists of ancient China were also keen observers of nature; in fact, they were important early Chinese scientists. I apply Taoist principles to some current ecological questions. The principles surveyed include reversion, the constancy of cyclical change, wu wei (“actionless activity”), and the procurement of power by abandoning the attempt to “take” it. On the basis of these principles, I argue that Taoists would have favored such contemporary options as passive solar energy (...)

    The Reliability of Sense Perception.Russell B. Goodman - 1994 - Review of Metaphysics 48 (1):121-122.
    At the heart of Alston's project is the notion of epistemic circularity. An argument is circular in the most direct way if it uses as a premise a statement it sets out to prove, but it is epistemically circular if it requires what it sets out to prove as justification for one of its premises. So it is with most of the arguments Alston considers here. For example, "track record" arguments try to show that sense perception is reliable by citing (...)

  24. American Philosophy Before Pragmatism.Russell B. Goodman - 2015 - Oxford University Press UK.
    Russell Goodman tells the story of the development of philosophy in America from the mid-18th century to the late 19th century. The key figures in this story, Jonathan Edwards, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, the writers of The Federalist, and the romantics Emerson and Thoreau, were not professors but men of the world, whose deep formative influence on American thought brought philosophy together with religion, politics, and literature.

    Emerson and Skepticism: A Reading of "Friendship".Russell B. Goodman - 2010 - European Journal of Pragmatism and American Philosophy 2 (2):5-15.
    Recent conversations with friends and students about Emerson's essay on friendship lead me to suspect that at least some of you will find Emerson's views so strange or radical as not to be about friendship at all. Others will be struck by his anticipations of Nietzsche, whose name I in-troduce here because like Nietzsche, who read him carefully, Emerson is a genealogist and refash-ioner of morals. When Emerson criticizes our normal friendships by writing that we mostly "descend to meet," he (...)

    John Dewey and American Democracy.Russell B. Goodman - 1992 - Review of Metaphysics 45 (4):887-888.
    In this admirable book, the most comprehensive ever written on Dewey, Robert Westbrook provides detailed and sympathetic accounts of Dewey's major works and many minor ones. The book's greatest value, however, lies in Westbrook's account of Dewey's political writing and activity. Drawing on unpublished letters and research on the political and historical contexts within which Dewey worked, Westbrook tells a story, in a pleasingly compelling style, that has been largely hidden from view.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson.Russell Goodman - 2008 - Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
    An American essayist, poet, and popular philosopher, Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–82) began his career as a Unitarian minister in Boston, but achieved worldwide fame as a lecturer and the author of such essays as “Self-Reliance,” “History,” “The Over-Soul,” and “Fate.” Drawing on English and German Romanticism, Neoplatonism, Kantianism, and Hinduism, Emerson developed a metaphysics of process, an epistemology of moods, and an “existentialist” ethics of self-improvement. He influenced generations of Americans, from his friend Henry David Thoreau to John Dewey, and (...)

  47. Some Sources of Putnam's Pragmatism.Russell B. Goodman - 2008 - Poznan Studies in the Philosophy of the Sciences and the Humanities 95 (1):125-140.
    This paper considers some sources, mostly within the pragmatist tradition, for the full-fledged pragmatism that Putnam set out in the 1980s and 1990s, particularly in The Many Faces of Realism and Realism with a Human Face. In considering Putnam's views about metaphysics, I pay particular attention to his pluralism , which I trace back through Nelson Goodman to William James. In considering Putnam's idea that facts and values are intertwined, I discuss both John Dewey and that neglected middle-generation pragmatist, C. (...)

    Transcendentalism is an American literary, political, and philosophical movement of the early nineteenth century, centered around Ralph Waldo Emerson. Other important transcendentalists were Henry David Thoreau, Margaret Fuller, Amos Bronson Alcott, Frederic Henry Hedge, and Theodore Parker. Stimulated by English and German Romanticism, the Biblical criticism of Herder and Schleiermacher, and the skepticism of Hume, the transcendentalists operated with the sense that a new era was at hand. They were critics of their contemporary society for its unthinking conformity, and urged (...)

I follow Cora Diamond’s lead in discussing a late paper by Vicki Hearne entitled “A Taxonomy of Knowing: Animals Captive, Free-Ranging, and at Liberty”, which (...)
